Wolves began their Championship campaign wth a 2-2 draw at Rotherham United on Saturday, and the game highlighted the club's need for further quality additions if they are to compete for the promotion places this term.

Walter Zenga's men seem to be a touch lightweight in the midfield area, with the lack of a tenacious, aggressive ball-winner among their squad.

It was reported in the Daily Mail last week that Crystal Palace are looking to offload Australia midfielder Mile Jedinak, and Wolves should do everything within their power to bring him to the football club.

Standing at 6 ft 2 in, the 32-year-old would bring a real presence to Zenga's midfield, and a combative style which is so important in the Championship.

He is renowned for his fantastic ability to sense danger, and snuff out the build-up play from the opposition before it manifests into something more dangerous.

The natural ability to read a game and make vital interceptions is something Jedinak is blessed with, and that combined with his physical presence is exactly what Wolves need to help them improve on last season's 14th place finish.

The Australian is highly experienced in England's second tier, having spent two season's playing in the Championship with Palace after he joined the Eagles in 2011.

Jedinak has only one year left to run on his contract at Palace, and at the age of 32, the transfer fee required to prise him away from Selhurst Park would likely be minimal.

With Wolves under new and ambitious ownership, it would be a deal that is financially viable for the club, and if a move came to fruition, one that would improve their chances of promotion considerably.

Jedinak has made 178 appearances for the Eagles during his five-year spell in South London.
